How does shampoo work?

Mycosoral has a fungistatic and fungicidal effect. The active component of the medication ketoconazole inhibits the biosynthesis of the wall enzyme ergosterol fungi and lipids of the protective membrane, which are necessary for the life and formation of cells of pathogenic fungi. Cellular tissue becomes impenetrable, as a result of which microorganisms lose the ability to form colonies, threads, cannot develop and grow. Due to these processes, a strong antifungal effect is achieved..
